“A drink, a drumbeat, a paradise, a prison… a far-off island of the mind… Let’s go to PERFECT PLACES…”
Lorde has finally debuted the official music video for “Perfect Places,” the second visual to be lifted off her excellent sophomore album Melodrama. In the Grant Singer-directed clip, Lorde travels between a variety of scenic locales, from beaches to boats, forests to a fancy dinner fit for one. Perhaps the most visually symbolic scene is when she joyfully dances in a green room around a light bulb which also doubles as a microphone.
It’s a lot more stripped-back than I was expecting, but it works. All you really need is Lorde being Lorde. WIN!
